Indescribable gift

Easter is approaching and I knew I had the perfect stamp set in my stash to create a fabulous Easter Card.  I have had the Indescribable Gift stamp set for quite a few weeks now which hadn't seen any ink up until now.

The stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder on to the vellum.  An embossing ball tool was used on the back to emboss the image. We then coloured the image  on the back with  Stampin’ Write markers, using Calypso Coral, and Pear Pizzazz,   It was  attached to the whisper white card with four small brads

 A new technique was used in the class for the second card. We used a brayer inked up with soft sky ink and rolled  it across the inside of the spring flowers embossing folder. We also found it worked just as well by rubbing over the embossing folder with an ink pad.

 The white card was put inside the folder and it was put through the big shot to create a fabulous background effect.

You could choose the debossed  or embossed image for your finished look

I did a workshop for a group of ladies using the same technique but with Sahara Sand

Two of the cards from the workshop showing both the embossed and debossed backgrounds. Don't they look great!

Why not have a go with your embossing folders to see what effects you achieve
